It depends. If they had the freedom to allocate funds, tax as they see fit they could come out pretty well if done right. They would essentially be a country within a state.
Do you know which city we are talking about?
Conspiracy to commit the crimes of sheltering, harboring, or employing illegal aliens is a separate federal offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or five years imprisonment
The penalty for felony harboring is a fine and imprisonment for up to five years.
A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he:
assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment,
encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.

I Googled some history.
Seems as early as last year, the leftists were laughing at everyone saying that "There were no sanctuary cities", that it was a myth!
And now we have multiple cities openly claiming to be Sanctuary Cities.
I imagine some members here, who are now arguing for sanctuary cities, were of the opinion that they didn't exist either.
